A rare event was before my eyes on Saturday morning.
After a heavy night out on Friday night with some fellow photographers I received a phone call from a family member saying that a heavy frost had settled across the island.
Frost is VERY rare in Guernsey, let alone a decent layer that shows up well in photographs and for over two years now I have struggled to capture anything that says "winter" about the beautiful island I live on.
My (wonderful) girlfriend got up with me and drove me to a place I had planned for such an event and my eyes were not disappointed. The hangover had soon disappeared as I composed this shot waiting for the sun to just lift over the horizon.
This is a 7 image stitch taken with my new 5D MkII. So what you see, even on the large size, is noting compared to what I can see on my screen. With a native size of over 40" at 300dpi I am so excited about getting this one printed and seeing just what this camera is capable of!
Thanks for looking
